Amy Sheon of the Telehealth Equity Coalition explains how telehealth falls short, and why it doesn’t have to.

Despite the widespread adoption telehealth saw during the COVID-19 pandemic, many telehealth deployments still fall short of real user-friendliness and provide less than ideal patient experiences, especially for certain populations that might have less access to reliable Internet or less experience with telecommunications.

On this episode, guest host and Healthcare IT News Senior Editor Kat Jercich welcomes Amy Sheon, research director at the Telehealth Equity Coalition, to discuss this important topic.
